started out as a 1896 Cornish Organ Co, Detroit, MI pump/reed organ … this from a gal who had it buried in the back of her small garage…and it had been there for some time…..after a little tlc….it’s done..and hopefully not destined to the back of a garage for a long while!

Another beautiful desk! Maybe the next time the organ has candle stands, you can incorporate them as coffee holders!
